New Years Eve: Family Style!

Happy New Year's Eve to all of you out there!  Are you going to do anything fun tonight?  While lots of people are going out to celebrate the beginning of a new decade, I've really enjoyed the last several years we've spent at home celebrating the night "Family Style".  Here's how we ring in the new year with our 4 boys - aged 3, 5, 7, and 9:
  • THE BALL:  We make a "New Years Ball" out of a halloween pumpkin treat bucket, covered in tin foil, with a string of white christmas lights wound/taped around it.  I am sure you can imagine how ghetto-beautiful this is.  But it matters not!!!  Hang it from the ceiling fan, plug in the lights, and INSTANT AMBIENCE!  It also makes a fine disco ball for the dancing that will ensue...

  • PLAY DRESS UP!  That's right - we dress up.  And not in the strict sense of the word either.  I make my hubby wear that too-tight-vest that I think makes him look like one of the "Newsies" (HOT!), I put on some crazy formal gown (I have a collection of odd vintage-wear), and the boys come out of their rooms in clothes ranging from "Date-Casual" to "Head-To-Toe-Cowboy" to "Batman".  Addie, our 3 year old, said he'll be "dressing up" as a dinosaur this year.  Cool.
  • SNACK IT UP:  Don't skimp on the party treats - kids can smell a sad hors d'oevres table a mile away.  Bust out all the couponing treats you've been squirrelling away, and even go out and splurge on something unexpected.  Our kid buffet this year includes M&M's, Nuts, Chips, Pizza Rolls, Mozzarella Sticks, Taco Dip, and various sodas.  (Hot wings for the husband of course)

  • DANCE PARTY:  We put on music and just let people do their thing.  Other time-fillers: Charades, balloon-volleyball, make-a-noisemaker craft(soda bottles and beans), board games, movies.
  • MAKE SOME NOISE: When the midnight hour arrives (or, about 9 o'clock at our house) we go outside and bang pots and pans together shouting "HAPPY NEW YEAR!" to the neighborhood.  If you have nicer cookwear, you might opt for poppers, noisemakers, or those things you pull and confetti comes out!  

  • GROWN-UP TIME:  Our kids still can't stay up till midnight, so my husband and I put them down (we let them "Slumber Party" together if they're still wired) and we watch an old movie after they're in bed.  Later on, when the ball drops, we'll do a clumsy but sentimental slow dance to Auld Lang Syne.  
 Well - that's how our family rings in the New Year .....  Now tell us how YOUR Family does it!

Have a Joyful & Blessed New Year!!

FREE New Years Eve Movie Rental

Once you put the kids to bed, you're either going to be stuck watching Ryan Seacrest introduce tweenie bands, stuffing your face with any and all snackfood in the house before your New Years Resolution Diet has to "officially" start at midnight, or both.

Fortunately, you can run out and rent a FREE movie Instead!
Redbox code ACME25 is still working - and can be used once per debit/credit card!

FREE Dora the Explorer Game Download!

This $19.99 game can be yours free, just by signing up HERE for updates from Nickelodeon/Nick Jr!  You'll get an email with a code and instructions - and I assume you can stop getting updates anytime you please.  I would say that "little girls" are going to love this...but I have 2 little boys who think that she's a "Super-Cool-Exploradora" too!

Amazon Prime: FREE 3-Month Trial!

Having Amazon Prime just means you get FREE Shipping  - and maybe there are some other benefits, but that's really all that interests me!  If you think you might use Amazon to buy anything in the next 3 months, here's how YOU can get Free Shipping too! *This works even if you've already had a free trial before!!!

1) GO HERE FREE 3 Month Trial of Amazon Prime! and add the book Pride & Prejudice (That's my personal fave ever, but don't fret, you won’t have to actually buy it!) to your cart with FREE Two-Day Shipping.

2) Go through the check out process.

3) When you get to the final page, (after it asks for your credit card info), you will see this:

4) Click on the button to start your trial, & get an offer for a free 3 month trial!  Then empty your cart - and go along your merry way!

★NOTE: Amazon tries to hook us by setting up an Auto-Renewal Feature, that will renew with charges after your 3-Month Trial is over.  No worries!  After signing up for your FREE 3 month trial, just go in to your Amazon account, click the “Manage Prime Membership” link, then click “Do Not Upgrade” and then click the “Turn Off Auto-Upgrade” button. 

I'm psyched!!! 3 whole months of FREE 2-Day shipping with no minimum purchases!!  Now that you've got FREE Shipping, stay tuned for future deals as we find them!

- Thanks, Hip2Save!

Leap Frog Printables UPDATE!

When I listed these New LeapFrog printables the other day - I accidentally made the link go to a crazy nonsense-place (Kind of like my Target's 75% Off Christmas Clearance Section - it simply does not exist...).  I also forgot to mention the super-secret zipcode you have to enter!!  Okay - link is fixed, so go HERE to print the following coupons & use zipcode: 27616
  • $2 off LeapFrog Tag Junior book PRINT
*Have been found on clearance at Wal-Mart for $5 = $3 after coupon!
  • $4 off LeapFrog Tag book PRINT

  • $5 off LeapFrog Leapster Learning Game PRINT
*Have been found on clearance at Wal-Mart for $9.98 = $4.98 after coupon!
    NOTE: Though some have found these on clearance at THEIR Wal-Marts, don't be too sad if your's doesn't have them.  As usual - it's a YMMV thing. (Your Mileage May Vary!)

    "A Full Cup" - We use it, do you??

    One of the ways we find deals and match up coupons w/sales around here is through This is kind of like our "Secret Weapon" for getting insider info.  But there's no reason we should keep it a secret from you guys - we want you to have a leg up too!!  So here's a handy-dandy guide and introduction to ......

    What It Is
    An online community of Coupon Pros (and novices) who have set up forums dedicated to every topic from CVS to Publix to Target Clearance.  The moderators of those forums know A LOT - I sometimes ask them about a deal before I post it - just to make sure it's sound.  Besides that, it is most used for it's fantastic Coupon Database - which I'll tell you more about next.

     What You'll Find
    ★ Grocery, Drugstore, and National Stores (like Walmart or Target) each have their own forums featuring: Store ads with coupon match-ups, weekly-ad "sneak-peeks", and tips on what works and what doesn't.  See below, there are several threads about Target deals, including After-Christmas Clearance, PM (Price-Matching) Questions, & 79¢ Oscar Meyer Lunchmeats!

    ★ The Beloved "Coupon Database" is my next favorite feature.  It's an EXTREMELY HELPFUL database of all newspaper & printable coupons - but WON'T list any that are expired .  For instance, in this shoddy screenshot below, I typed in "Snuggle" because I forgot what newspaper insert that great $2 Coupon was from.  It tells me it's from the 12/06 RP!

    ★ Experienced Coupon Veterans are almost always online to mentor and give advice when you're not sure about something....  Like these people below, who are asking for "HELP!"

    ★ A "Hot Deals" section on the front page of the site broadcasts the bargains everyone's buzzing about.  This week's "Hot Deals" so far include FREE Fresco Tacos at Taco Bell, 20% Gap Coupon, etc....
    ★ LOTS MORE!!!  Coupon trading, helpful articles, "How-To" Guides, and tons of other features await you if you're interested!
    We really want to make it easy for you to use coupons, and give you the tools you need to be successful at it.  This is a site we've used for a long time, and it just occurred to me that we haven't talked much about it! 
    Go HERE to sign up (it's totally free!) and take some time to look around.  I have a hunch you're going to get really excited about a few things!

    Load up on FREE Prints!

    I've mentioned before that one of my New Year's Resolutions is to start making actual photo albums with real, tangible pictures for my kids to look through.  I didn't realize what a problem it was, until my 3 younger boys started wondering why we ONLY have actual photos of my oldest son.  (Well, because after him we got a digital camera!)

    So, I've been looking into joining up with several photo sites just to take advantage of the FREE prints they all offer to new customers. I figure, if I can get 30 prints here, 50 here, 100 here, etc.... I'll be well on my way to giving my younger kids some Photo-Album Face Time!  Here's a few "New Member = Free Prints" websites you can take advantage of too:

    *TIP: Right now, when you click on the links, you will have to leave our site.  Until we get that fixed, just RIGHT CLICK on the link (so you can see a drop-down menu of options) and choose the option "Open in New Tab" or "Open in New Window".  That way you can keep coming back here for those other freebie offers!

        Pulling Coupons for Christmas Clearance

        The weeks following a big holiday are one of the BEST times to pick up ordinary items to stockpile in your pantry.  For instance, I know Kelly stocks up BIG TIME on her ziploc bags in the aftermath of Christmas - as she told me once, while everyone else is running for the toy aisle, she's making a beeline for the baggies!  Here is a little list of items you might want to keep in an envelope or special binder-pocket and bring along as you hit various stores over the next couple weeks.  You never know what you'll find - so keep your eyes peeled!

        Air Fresheners/ Candles
        Cake Mixes, Frosting, & Decorations
        Coffee & Coffee Creamers ~ Seasonal
        Cookies ( packaged & refrig. )
        Cranberry Sauce, Stuffing, Gravy
        Gift Sets (Like Axe, Bod Man, Old Spice, etc..)
        Ham & Turkey
        Ice Cream ~ Holiday Flavors
        Kleenex (in those Christmasy boxes)
        Paper Plates, Napkins, Foil
        Plastic Storage & Freezer Bags, Plastic Wrap, Plastic Cups
        Shower Gel/Hand Soaps (in Holiday Scents like Cranberry Mistletoe something-or-other)
        Sparkling Juices
        Toys (find some Hasbro/Playskool coupons HERE)

        If you get out there in the fray and find any clearance great deals with coupons that match - send us a tip or comment on this post!
